“One of the most powerful works in the Atheneaum show is “Wordfall” by Francie Hester and Lisa Hill. Constructed from more than 60,000 interconnected paperclips – each of which has been wrapped with small strips of printed paper and hung in strings, like a beaded curtain – the sculpture forms a kind of torrent of printed text. Few individual works in “Wordfall” are legible. But that is not the point, its message is that in the writing we leave behind, we live forever.”
